Danger is not my middle name, but it should be. I wrote in an earlier post called: Yes I Saved My Family Again about how I had to put myself at risk for the safety of my loved ones. Well, it happened again.
I came home during the day for lunch and was drinking some water, looking out my kitchen window and saw something struggling in the pool. I ran outside and saw this:
(Arizona Desert Ground Squirrel...doing the dog paddle)
(the little monster, up-close)
(Though there was enough time for me to take some pictures), there really was no more time to waste. I grabbed our skimming net and rescued the little monster and plopped him onto the patio. I assume he was relieved (but did I get a thank-you??), and then he ran under the gate and back to his home to tell the story of the gentle giant who saved his life.
(home safe in his hole)
